Spitfire Mk,VIII (Arii 1/48)

by Angel Expósito on September 15, 2017 in Aviation -- 36 Comments

Hello everyone. This is my first post, since I just landed. I usually only build on 1/72, but I wanted to try to give this kit a go. At present there are brands that manufacture Spits with a higher level, […]

Airfix 1:72 Spitfire

by Dennis Meyers on September 13, 2017 in Aviation -- 13 Comments

Had to take a hiatus to sell our house and move into an apartment until the new house is finished. Got back to models with this great little gem. Haven’t set up an airbrush station yet so did all the […]

Here’s two I prepared earlier…

by John Kerr on September 13, 2017 in Aviation -- 7 Comments

Both are TAMIYA 1/48 scale kits. 1. The P-47D “Pride O’ Dogpatch” is actually the P-47M kit as it has the fin-fillet. Decals by AeroMaster. 2. The P-51D “Madam Wham-Dam” is a VLR Mustang based at Iwo Jima. The a/c […]

MiG-21MF ‘Fishbed-J’

by Sebastijan Videc on September 13, 2017 in Aviation -- 29 Comments

I don’t do a lot of commission builds so this is more of an exception. A flight-simming friend did me a lot of favors in the last few months for which I am very grateful. And he’s a big MiG-21 […]

Wingnut Wings Sopwith Snipe

by Paul Carpenter on September 13, 2017 in Aviation -- 24 Comments

Hi all, this is my first post but not my first model! I typically build Australian Flying Corps subjects and so the Snipe was a long awaited addition to my collection. I always like a challenge at the Snipe really […]

1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18C VFA-151 Vigilantes

by Eric Salazar on September 11, 2017 in Aviation -- 29 Comments

This is my latest build, 1/48 Hasegawa Legacy Hornet. For this project I used Eduard PE for the cockpit, twobobs decal, MAW resin for the exhaust, Gunze acrylics paint and Alclad for the exhaust. It was an enjoyable build all […]

MiG-15 UTI, Iraq Air Force / HobbyBoss 1:72 /

by Bartek Karpiński on September 11, 2017 in Aviation -- 24 Comments

MiG-15 is a very popular plane, so common for Warsaw Pact countries. Almost 18,000 were produced, but mostly MiG-15 is associating with overall silver look. I decided to break that and choose some unusual paint scheme for my model. Decals […]

Glamorous Glennis in 1/72

by Jeff Thomsen on September 10, 2017 in Aviation -- 12 Comments

Finally finished this one – the old Tamiya kit – and it was a pleasure to build. Fit was generally very good and the cockpit and landing gear really looked the part. I added some Brengun photo etch, some miscellaneous […]

1/48 Late Mk I Hurricane Airfix

by Dale Cole on September 10, 2017 in Aviation -- 10 Comments

After buying a reference book about the Hurricane that had artwork for this a/c I had to try to build it. After a lot of research I found the book artwork to be very inaccurate! I finally located two grainy […]
